I have been making pottery since 1969. I began working and teaching at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, New York. I moved to Cape Cod in the early 80's and set up a studio and gallery at my present location. I produce a variety of forms in stoneware, porcelain and raku by hand, on the potters wheel or by handbuilding. I also make nonfunctional form oriented pots using primitive firing techniques. My functional pots are lead free, dishwasher safe, and microwave and oven proof.
One of my favorite things is to open up the kiln to see what spectacular things have occurred during the firing process.
Each time I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, so anxious to open it up to see what marvelous gift is inside.
Please come by and visit me in The Barn - my gallery and workshop.
Each season I experiment with new glazes and color patterns to create unique pieces
Some burnished pieces were wrapped in various natural elements such as seaweed, copper wire and/or twine
and buried beneath seaweed, wood chips and sawdust. The fire blazed then smoldered for approximately 14 hours before the "unveiling".
